Part number: DS-NETSAFE-IPC

The new NETSAFE-IPC is the first table-top cabinet that protects and recharges up to 20 iPads or iPad2s (16 in most standard cases) and stores a MacBook.
The NETSAFE-IPC does NOT sync.

Safe and Secure: Secure and compact, this cabinet is perfect for classrooms, libraries and training facilities where multiple iPads have to be protected and charged. It has a very secure locking mechanism, the hallmark of all Datamation Systems products.

You work hard for your technology resources. You might as well protect them with a real level of security, something provided by Datamation Systems Ipad carts and cabinets.

The Netsafe-IP plugs into standard wall outlets. If you keep your iPads in cases, the cabinet dividers can be adjusted. Even the thickest cases we have seen will allow the storage of 16 iPads or iPad2s. (Not all carts and cabinets can say this.) And it has a shelf for a MacBook or other computer.

To charge iPads, NETSAFE-IPC comes with 24 outlets. To sync-and-charge, the NETSAFE-IPCS syncs 16 iPads simultaneously (with or without cases), or charges them simultaneously, the first iPad sync-and-charge solution in a secure cabinet or cart.

Sync-and-Charge: The challenge in creating this Ipad sync-and-charge cart solution is that the iPad is designed to re-charge through the same USB port as is used to sync to iTunes, but the two functions use different power settings. Traditional USB-hubs do not provide enough power to both charge and sync Ipads. The syncing feature of the NETSAFE-IPCS combines Datamation Systems storage and security expertise with the engineering of Cambrionix, a UK-based company that specializes in state-of-the art lab, testing and USB solutions, creating the first USB product for synchronizing and charging multiple iPads.

Using a MacBook, iPad users can simultaneously sync 16 iPads with iTunes or charge multiple iPads, all in the same cabinet. (Using a Windows PC, iTunes is limited to recognizing seven devices at a time.)

Sustainable: The design of the NETSAFE-IP takes sustainability seriously. This Ipad sync-and-charge cart solution uses the cables and accessories provided by Apple, preventing waste and keeping down the cost of the cabinets. It uses recycled material wherever possible and is made with environmentally friendly processes. It is durable and adjustable, so it can be adapted to new technology requirements and lasts a long time.

The small size of the NETSAFE-IP is a great advantage, especially in classrooms in which real estate is at a valuable premium. Carts and cabinets designed for larger notebook computers just don't make the best use of the small size and design of the iPad. The NETSAFE-IP does. And the NETSAFE-IP has a simple, innovative cable management system for easy set-up and easy use.

The NETSAFE-IP includes a pass-through USB jack and a storage shelf to protect and recharge a MacBook.

The NETSAFE-IP accommodates the iPad2 and will be able to accommodate almost any new Apple model.

Data transfer speeds for syncing: Cambrionix performed tests on the C3 board to see how quickly it can simultaneously sync 16 devices. They calculate that it takes approximately 5.3 minutes to transfer a one gigabyte video file to 16 iPads.
Charging speeds for iPads: We ran some tests, charging iPads that had been completely depleted, to see how long various methods took to re-charge them from 100% empty to 100% full.

USB port 2.0: On a desktop PC, it took 13 hours 30 minutes to charge a single iPad through the trickle charge on the USB port. The iPad does not display that the unit is charging. We have heard that this can take longer if it is done on a computer or notebook that goes into sleep mode.

On some multi-USB hubs (even powered hubs), the USB charge shares the available power supply and would take even longer. On one 24-port hub we reviewed, the unit had a 22.5W power supply which gives less than 200mA per port so trickle charging would take more than twice as long as even the worst PC port. If the iPad is used daily for a few hours, the net charge in the iPad (if charged on this hub each evening) would go down.

Plugged into the Cambrionix C3 USB board: This is the sync-and-charge device used within the Datamation Systems cabinets and carts. A complete empty-to-charged cycle took 4 hours, 35 minutes. According to Cambrionix, the charging time is the same as it is using the charging block supplied with the iPad itself. This would be the time required whether you are re-charging one or 16 iPads in the cart, as each port is provided with the full power required.
